    I worked at Red Mango part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The free yogurt is nice-- at my store, we were allowed one regular size with up to 4 toppings per shift, plus samples. For the most part, my coworkers were all very nice, and the supervisors were fairly laid back. And even though the tips aren't much, it's nice to go home with a little extra money.

    Cons

    It's a minimum wage job with a lot of stress. Depending on when you work, things can be either mind-numbingly slow or super hectic. My store had outdated technology that made transactions complicated, slowing things down and causing problems with customers. There are all kinds of gross things that need to get done (you're working in food service, after all), and the work is extremely monotonous. The manager was rarely at the store, which caused a variety of problems. Whatever system is used for scheduling is messed up, because I was consistently scheduled for times when I had told the manager I was unavailable. We also ordered way too much fruit, and so a lot of it would have to be thrown away, which bothered me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish someone higher up in the company had been keeping in touch with our manager. The store has a lot of problems, and it just seemed like none of them were ever going to be solved. Specifically, I would love to see the company implement a composting system. I'm not sure if other locations throw away as much fruit as ours does, but it would be a great way to deal with the waste in a responsible way.

    I worked at Red Mango full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Managing my store was a great experience, I had friendly coworkers and the owner of this particular store was very hands on, which in my case was a good thing.

    Cons

    Being manager was the highest position you could get, used this as a stepping stone to bigger opportunities
